    what do i need to change?

    thanks

  • mark hudson Feb 21, 2008

    the machine with vista picks up the printer and will even print a test page with no problems, anything else just comes out with small line on it

  • mark hudson Feb 21, 2008

    ive played around a bit and it seems to print everything ok but pdf's and cad related files. any suggestions??

  • mark hudson Feb 22, 2008

    if i print a word file it will print perfect, if i convert it to a pdf file it wont print properly, i have an epson 3000 installed on the same server and that will print the file in word and pdf perfect and both printers look to be configured the same. the 1 person who uses this printer is the person who uses autodesk inventor and needs to print to this printer for the a3 size

  • mark hudson Feb 26, 2008

    i managed to fix this problem, for anyone else who might have the same issue, install the deskjet 1220c driver instead of the 1280 driver. thanks for all your help r_generato it was much appreciated.

    Setup a new network connection, be sure your workgroup is the same with each other.

  • Ernest Ryanshamar Generato

    What about that? PDF's and CAD's

  • Ernest Ryanshamar Generato

    Open the preference of your PDF or Auto desk software and configure the printer you will use.

How i solve the blank print on a3 paper on autocad


It seems you are using a print server to connect the printer 1280 to your LAN. Uninstall the printer software and printer server driver. Connect the print server to the network and first re-install the print server driver. Then connect the printer to the print server and install the printer software. Refer user manual for assistance. Bot the print server and printer software should be compatible with your operating system.

I installed the printer and share it. It is only available to user who are on x64bit. user with 32 bit win xp cant access it and install/share it. I have tried to download and install x86 driver but...


This is the HP solution for the problem


HP LaserJet, Color LaserJet and LaserJet MFP Products - Print driver Client / Server Connections in a mixed 32-bit and 64-bit environment ISSUE: 32-bit clients are not able to connect to shared Universal Print drivers or discrete drivers on a 64-bit print server or vice-versa. These scenarios may involve Server 2003/Server 2008 64-bit print servers with Windows XP, Vista, 7 32-bit clients. It is also possible that the server editions could be 32-bit versions with 64-bit clients. SOLUTION:
  1. The administrator will need to download the 64-bit AND 32-bt version of the print driver from www.hp.com . If the server involved is a 64-bit version, the 64-bit version of the print driver will need to be installed and mapped to the printer via TCP/IP. Ensure that the print driver has been shared on the network by going to the print driver properties and enabling Share this printer within the Sharing tab. c02030528.gif

    Ensure that communication has been established and that a driver test page can be printed from the 64-bit server. Once functionality has been confirmed from the 64-bit server, proceed to the next step.

  2. Currently, 64-bit clients will be able to connect to the shared 64-bit print driver that has been installed on the 64-bit server as the architecture currently matches. However, if 32-bit clients wish to map to the shared 64-bit print driver on the 64-bit server, the 32-bit version of the same driver will need to be installed within the current 64-bit driver.
    This process can be done by navigating to the printer properties of the 64-bit driver on the 64-bit server, clicking the Sharing tab and clicking the Additional Drivers button. c02030529.gif

  3. Once the administrator clicks on the Additional Drivers button, the next screen will allow the administrator to load the 32-bit drivers by placing a checkmark in the x86 button and clicking the OK button. c02030530.gif
  4. Once the administrator clicks the OK button, a print driver window will pop-up asking for the 32-bit driver components. Again, the administrator will need to download, and extract the 32-bit version of the print driver on the 64-bit server. Once the window below comes up, the administrator will need to navigate to the 32-bit driver components and select the appropriate driver .inf file.
    For example, the UPD .inf file would be the first file in the list and be named hpcuXXXc.inf. c02030531.gif

    Once the appropriate .inf file is selected, the 32-bit driver components will be installed within the 64-bit driver on the 64-bit server. This can be verified as both x86 (32-Bit) and x64 (64-Bit) boxes will now be checked and show the status as installed by clicking the Additional Drivers button compared to the screenshot in Step 3 above.

  5. Now that 64-Bit and 32-Bit drivers have been loaded onto the 64-Bit server, 32-Bit and 64-Bit clients can now navigate to the shared print driver on the 64-Bit server, by manually navigating to the shared print driver on the 64-Bit server from the client machine. Typically the path is \\servername\sharedprintername.

  6. Once the client maps to the shared print driver, printing should work successfully.

    For problems or errors that continue to occur after completing the aforementioned process, ensure that the latest version of the print drivers are being used www.hp.com . If there are problems with older discrete drivers, it is recommended to use the latest version of the Universal Print Driver which can be found at www.hp.com/go/upd .

My printer HP C5280 don't print.It says that there is an error.I've tried reinstalling the driver and other things nothing helped.


An HP deskjet color printer is attached to an NT server on LPT1 and share on a network. It has been working well for sometimes but now, we can no longer print documents from the server console to that printer. No error message is generated. Other Windows 98 users on the network can print to this printer. Both the server and printer have been rebooted several times. Re-installation of the driver was attempted and an "unrecognized option" error was generated. The printer's uninstall program was run and the printer icon remains in the print folder. What is the most probable solution to this printer problem?
-- Max

This sort of problem is the main reason I don't like to have a network printer attached to a server. It's nice when it works but can be a real pain to troubleshoot when it doesn't. As a general rule, I don't suggest trying to share an inkjet printer unless it has a built-in network jack. I have run into several situations where the bi-directional communication between the printer and the LPT port just doesn't work well in a network situation. Even with improvements in server hardware over the past several years, putting a printer on LPT1 (or any LPT port for that matter) can slow the server down, based on the IRQ normally associated with the parallel port.

If the clients can print to the printer, that would suggest the path over the network is good. I would verify that you have all the latest Windows updates applied to the server. If you have anti-virus installed on the serve (and you probably do), I would apply these updates with the anti-virus disabled. While this shouldn't be a problem, I have had it bite me more than once. After applying the updates and rebooting the server one more time, make sure that you have the latest printer drivers from HP. Disable the anti-virus softwareagain, then reinstall the printer driver to see if you get the same result. If you do get the same error, a check of HP's support web site or a call to HP Support may be in order to do a file/registry level removal of the printer driver information.

While doing this, disconnect the printer from the server or you may end up fighting the operating system trying to rediscover and install printer drivers while you are trying to clear up the initial problem. After completing these and potentially doing another reboot of the server, you might be able to successfully reinstall the printer driver.

.....because the manufacturers did not expect, such a sophisticated, multifunction unit such as you wish to use. usually at best, most Servers may have a "Dot Matrix" printer, at best. "They" feel that only one of the "Clients" would utilize something like that.

Print jobs get stuck in the queue


OK - all the answer posts on HP sites, Experts Exchange and MS have been a joke to this problem so far. HP 10xx series LaserJet printers do not work (well) in a shared environment. I have found two solutions to this problem. If you really don't understand shares/printing/services/firewall exceptions - don't bother trying this - buy a networked printer when the toner runs out of the HP10xx.
If you want to spend a few hours or about $100 for a print server/NAS device, read on... I HAVE an HP1022 shared on a Windows XP Pro SP3 machine serving as a print server to a Vista laptop, a Windows 7 desktop and a Mac-Mini running OS X 10.6.x. ALL are working.
1. Buy a network print server device (or a NAS device with an included print server - I picked up a Buffalo LS-CHL 1TB and it worked out of the box. I AM NOT ENDORSING BUFFALO NAS servers, they get horrible reviews and you may end up having the same problem down the road due to the NAS device) In this case, your print clients (Win7, Vista, XP, MacOS X) can use a traditional SMB Windows client to print or the BETTER solution is to use the print services for Unix client that comes with Windows but is not installed by default. Both clients work, you may have fewer problems down the road using the Unix (LPR) client. See http://www.alexfalkenberg.com/2009/10/06/linkstation-windows-printing-problem-solved/ This is an excellent article on the Buffalo - BUT THE SOLUTION works in a native windows environment as well.
2. Build on the idea from number 1 above and INSTALL the LPDSVC (friendly name TCP/IP print services) on the machine with the printer LOCALLY attached through USB. You will also have to open up some firewall ports on the machine you are using as a print server if you have one running... I used a program exception (C:\WINDOWS\system32\tcpsvcs.exe) but you could lock this down to 1 TCP port if you wish - I think TCP 515 but you'd better check on this one...) Share the printer as normal. Next install the "Print Services for Unix" CLIENT on the machines you want to connect to the printer remotely from. When you connect to the printer share from the clients, select a LOCAL port, create a NEW PORT, select LPR, use the hostname or the IP of your machine acting as a print server and the NAME OF THE SHARE as the queue. (I don't like to have spaces in my share names, so I used HPLaserJet when I set up the share and description.) You will HAVE TO INSTALL THE RIGHT Printer driver locally on each client. This might be easiest just plugging in the printer with a USB cable since the HP printer driver is an installer as well and wants it to be connected locally unless you can extract the driver...)
Sorry I can't give more details than this. If you don't get the jist of what I am saying above. Don't try it. Give up and call the plumber.

PSC 2175 wont work with print server


Please make sure that the printer is working okay if directlysd connected to the MAC computer. You may try this as well. hope this helps

Description
LPR (line printer remote) is a platform independent printing protocol that is associate with TCP/IP. It works by using LPR client software that communicates to a server running LPR services.

In terms of PSU, LPR printing will become the basis for all network printing while Novell print queues are phased out. Therefore, all Macintosh, Windows, and Unix computers will be configured to print through LPR.

Requirements

· The name of LPR print queue. This can be found by searching the LPR printer database.

· LaserWriter print drivers version 8.5.1 or newer

· The Macintosh must have a working TCP/IP networking configuration. (If the Mac can browse the web then it's working.)

· a server running LPR services or a printer that supports LPR printing. Most HP LaserJet printers support LPR. However, only the following LaserWriters support LPR printing:

- LaserWriter 8500
- LaserWriter 16/600 PS
- LaserWriter 12/640 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/660 PS Procedure

1.Open up the Applications folder from the OS X menu.
2.Open up the Utilities folder
3.Now open up the Print Center
4.If you have no printers installed you will see the following screen. Click on Add.
5.On the following screen, select LPR printing.
6.Now enter printhost.oit.pdx.edu for the LPR Printer's address.
7.Uncheck Use Default Queue on Server option and enter the queue name of the printer.
8.Select the printer model.
9.The completed settings should be similar to the following:
(LPR Printer’s address is the ip of our PRINTSERVER)
10.Click on Add
11.Your printer has successfully been installed. Test the printer by printing something to it.

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
